You must book this visit in advance to ensure entry - it is very popular (online site available). Each session is limited to 15 minutes and 25 people. Prior to entry, to stage the next group there is a 10-12 minute video with an overview of the chapel and Giotto's works. We have viewed frescoes all over Europe including the... More

I am the type of tourist who likes visiting museums, wondering through cities etc. But La Capella degli Scrovegni is worth visiting even if you enjoy relaxing vacations too. This small chapel, belonging to the Musei Civici di Padova, has been restored and can be visited in an almost 30' tour. The price of 13€ is pretty fair for the... More

Brilliant medieval building with frescoes and architecture that are unrivalled. Waiting time softened by an interesting video which gave an insight into the history of the building and The work of Giotto. Ample time allowed to examine the art.

As an art history student, Giotto is mentioned too much throughout my studies. As part of a university trip to Padua we visited. The Scrovegni chapel and were able to enter the chapel to view the frescoes. Firstly you watch a ridiculous 15 min video before entering the chapel for 15 minutes. Photographs are not permitted inside the chapel. The... More

This is a famous little chapel close to the train station. The paintings inside are great but admission fee applies and to be fair if there is a place where you can see alternative churches and for free, it is Italy. So unless, you are really a fan of churches and their interiors, I think you can skip.

Amazing experience... If you travel to Padova you cannot miss it... For us though wasn't easy to get the tickets. I would suggest to prebook on line.

Breathtaking place, the best in padova. The wall painting are amazing. In the summer time you must order in advance. You get only 15 minutes to see it inside. The cost is 8 EUR But it is better to pay 13 EUR for the museum too.

The frescoes from Giotto are the equal of anything from the Italian Renaissance, and that is not an idea boast. They say that Giotto, who brought color, emotion and perspective to the art world, is the man who literally began the Renaissance and inspired all who followed, from Michelangelo to DaVinci. The frescoes depict all the major New and Old... More

The paintings inside the chapel are amazing and well preserved. This is a must see sight and make sure you have reservations. Double time reservations are highly recommended if you can get them.
